[Photos]: Delta State Beyond Oil – Renewing Community Healthcare Delivery

Inside the Ward - showing the clean environment befitting a hospital

The State administration of Delta under the leadership of Governor Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan through its mantra of ‘Delta State Beyond Oil’ is reported to have begun a gradual re-shufflement of the Delta State social-economic based away from crude oil as the primary hope for youth employment and community development.

The case at the Eku Baptist Hospital in Delta State tells the story.

The Eku Baptist Hospital was originally owned by the Baptist missionaries who erected the hospital complex pre-colonial era. Following the exist/end of the colonial, the managers of the Hospital could not administer the facility. It led to the community of Eku – into acquiring the medical complex from the Baptist church.

After years of managing the complex, the Eku community found the management of the medical facilty overbearing. They turned to the Delta State government for help. The Delta State government responded – and took over the facility – and launched a massive renovation and upgrade of the facility to international standards.

While upgrading, the community leaders in Eku were placed as supervising stakeholders – ensuring their community hospital to build to appreciably standard. In the process, the youths of the sorrounding community are given the opportunity of gaining useful employment and training. The hospital is expected to employ new batch of medical practitioners to fill the increased demand by patience.
